Absolutely not! Many people come to BarCamp just to meet new people and listen to other folks give cool presentations, and that's great! We encourage people to participate however they are most comfortable. That's the beauty of the "un-conference." You can pretty much do whatever you want.
There’s no need to bring anything special to BarCamp Kerala, but if you are looking for things to stuff into your fanny pack, here are our suggestions:
Your notebook and a pen for taking notes and collecting autographs.
Something to share with all of your new friends...a business card perhaps?
Smartphones, Tablets, Wearables, laptops, what else do you have?
A friend...if your friend fits in your fanny pack.
Each time slot is 30 minutes. Speakers are allowed to use that time however they wish. You could even share one 30-minute time slot with multiple people or set up a panel discussion. It's probably a good idea to allow time for comments and questions because BarCamp audiences tend to be very participatory!
No. To be respectful of our BarCamp attendees, sales presentations or all-out sales pitches are not allowed. Don't even try it, folks.
